dcollon Posted December 28, 2015 Share Posted December 28, 2015 https://fundooprofessor.wordpress.com/2015/12/28/hedonic-treadmill/ The hedonic treadmill, also known as hedonic adaptation, is the observed tendency of humans to quickly return to a relatively stable level of happiness despite major positive or negative events or life changes.
